Stoughton F 28th 1932
Dear Doris

The day is damp & chilly from two days of stormy weather without sun. To day is the same kind of weather & the wind is N East. I have just got your P's clothes changed & given him a partial bath. he dont know but a little about doing things right. & strong willed as ever he was this is the last time with every thing he says. he slep well last night & had a good clearing out this morning.
I manage to get a couple of muffins down days that I possibly can. he is pretty good about taking them if he isnt urged too hard. I never saw any one who wanted their own way any more than he does.
I tried to cut out the cloth for the babies duss that one that Maude sent over. but as I was not used to the pattern i found it hard to do with him continuously at my elbo. as you spoke about Mrs Cuttings making up some for the baby I will send down Maudes cloth & she can do as she pleases about cutting the second one out by that pattern. I partially cut out the first one & cut out the left one for the same side as the number 2 before I thought. but I guess there will be cloth
